Instruction for the autodidact on the eve of Revolution
This is a most fascinating book which provides a general and practical education in letters, mathematics, self-medication, and more.
There are many quaint passages with aphorisms and sentiments for the ambitious planter or entrepreneur.
Much is still practical, also giving insight into history and a general world view of one living c. 1770.
There are samples of business and legal correspondence to use as models-- again, fascinating.
